"Dance With The One (Who Brought You Here)" came from an afternoon-turned-evening session with Erica's then roommate singer/songwriter K Phillips in which a first draft was pounded out on one of K's vintage typewriters. 

"When we recorded Dance With the one (who brought you here) we knew we wanted to start by creating a percussion track. we had been digging the percussion on the song 'honey pie' [Jonathan Tyler], and we'd been listening to the album 'High on tulsa heat' [john moreland], which has some incredible percussion, and of course our favorite Todd May song 'Better way to build a rocket' which features a killer clave track. We actually bought a pair of claves just for this song."

"Blinn packs enough smoldering sensuality into her material to light up a football stadium” - BLURT Magazine

Armed with an abused Telecaster, a belt of harmonicas, a new record titled Better Than Gold, she has no plans to stop criss-crossing the USA anytime soon. 2017's Better Than Gold is the product of a woman who is smarter and stronger than she ever has been. Some of the songs were written alone, in her room, on her porch, or in her kitchen. Produced, engineered and mixed by longtime friend and fan Mike Landolt (O.A.R, Maroon 5).
